My name is Andria Achong and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Florida. I have been practicing in the clinical social work field for 10 years. I graduated from Florida State University with a Master in Social Work. I have worked with different populations include teenagers, adults, and geriatrics. My experience includes working with individuals with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, career challenges, substance use issues, and major life changes including growing older and adjusting to new normals.
Many of the patients I have previously worked with experienced anxiety, depression, addiction and other negative emotions that you could be experiencing yourself. I use a number of techniques depending on what works for the patient. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic approaches, strength-based approaches, solution focused techniques, and mindfulness practices. You are the most important part of the counseling relationship. We start where you are and work towards the goals you want to achieve. I look forward to working with you and guiding you in meeting your therapeutic goals.

I have had a prior bad counseling experience so I was nervous to get start in counseling again. Andria, but my mind at ease and been wonderful to work with. I love how encouraging she is. It’s so nice to have some one to talk to who’s not related to.
She always knows what helps, and is very attentive! The very best traits you’d want for a counselor!
Absolutely LOVE her!!! Can’t wait for our next session
Andria is an amazing human, she absorbs what you are telling her, your needs, or goals, your concerns everything and throws something back at you to work on. She is an excellent counselor.
Thank you for your help and always putting me first in counseling. You take time and really try to understand me and validate my experiences. I appreciate the effort, time, and research put in to provide me with resources and strategies that are applicable to me. I would recommend her to others! She is a great counselor!
I really appreciate Andria’s help. She works with me to talk through my thoughts and feelings and validates me while pushing me to evaluate why I’m feeling these things. I look forward to every session I have with her and have recommended her to family and friends who also live in my state. She makes me feel worthy and deserving of good things. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist.
Andria has been really helpful! She’s excited for me when I have good days and helps me work through my bad days. She listens when I am explaining my struggles and then recommends ways in which I can move forward.
I have never had success with therapy before; however, I was able to connect with Andria right away. I love my action plan and the way it makes me feel once complete. Andria also helped me realize there was a name for a certain situation I have been in during the last 16 years and that I’m not the only person in that situation.
I am in my 1st month and can already sense relief from having a person to just "talk" out some of my worries or stresses! Thank you
